Today I'm excited to share ten scrapbook pages that I saw on Pinterest and fell in love with.
I love the stitching, the subtle sprays of color on the tags, the tags themselves, the masterful use of the embellishments, the overall design -- just brilliant!
In some ways it's such a random collection of elements, but she just makes it all work so beautifully and seemingly effortlessly. I love the big number, the stamping on the photo, the quirky stitching, and those blue strips that pull it all together!
I love how she created the pinwheels, but then contained them in the white block. It's so much nicer than if they covered the whole page -- and such an unusual choice too. Really awesome, and totally demonstrates the "less is more" mantra.
Well, I have to say that I love Marsha for using the Balzer Designs "Clouds" stencil so masterfully! I also love the inky background on the ledger paper and those cool gold dots. The string running across the layout is awesome too!
I think the two-page layout is a wickedly difficult thing to do well. I love and adore the design of this page. It feels full and yet it breathes and it's so simple and well done. I love the use of tags and the the little photo in the circle -- just so well done!
I cannot tell you how much I love and adore the star with its layers of patterned paper! Such a cool idea and so well done! I also think the circle with its sequins and buttons and paint splats and other flotsam and jetsam is brilliant.
I am often admiring of, and inspired by, artwork that looks nothing like what I do, as much as I'm inspired by artwork that is within my millieu. Mostly, I admire artwork and scrapbook pages where I feel like the creator has worked the page or project in a unique and thoughtful way. Quirk appeals to me. Unique design always catches my eye. I also go for bright colors, lots of white space, simplicity, and a strong sense of being hand made.
What appeals to you when you look at other people's scrapbook pages?
Thanks for stopping by!
